Boilers and Radiators

Boilers and radiators are the two most important parts of a heating system. The heat that is spread across your household in times of need originates at the boiler in a strategically placed position, traditionally using water and then a pump is there to carry the heat into radiators in all other rooms to keep your home warm.

Function of a boiler

Boiler is the source of the heat in the heating system, which is the modern day version of a furnace. Natural gas from the main supply here acts as the coal or wood used in the earlier days. When the valve of the boiler is opened by pressing an electrical switch externally, the gas enters the sealed combustion chamber and heats the cold water in the pipes up to the necessary temperature with the help of the heat exchanger.

Function of a radiator

A radiator in the heating system is a copper pipe turning a dozen or more times back and forth like winding roads for the water to pass through and the heat emanated to enter the designated room. The heated water, pumped up from the boiler flows around every loop and then leaves the radiator to return to the boiler to pick up more heat for the next round.

In case of your heating system, the boiler acts as the starting point, whereas the radiator is the drop point, and the water is the vehicle and the heat is the passenger.

Installation of boilers and radiators

Getting boilers and radiators installed in your household is part and parcel of the whole procedure of setting up the heating system. It requires professional and trained supervision to be done correctly. You will also help need of a heating service person to pick and choose the right radiator and boiler for your household.
